The formula for volume of a rectangular prism is `V= l times w times h`
As we have the volume already, we will manipulate the formula to find the height:
`V/(l times w) = h`
Now substitute the values we have been given:
`therefore 36000/(30 times 20) = h`
`therefore 36000/600 =h`
Ans: The height of the tank is 60cm
